Fixed / Removable Dentures
We provide both removable and fixed dentures (implant-supported dentures) to replace missing teeth and soft tissue.
A denture can replace a full arch of teeth (complete dentures), or a number of individual or groups of teeth (partial dentures). There are two types of dentures: acrylic plastic and cobalt chromium metal dentures.
One disadvantage of wearing removable dentures is that, as they rest of the remaining teeth and gums, they can cause bone loss, tooth decay and gum disease. Typically they need to be relined from time to time to compensate for the bone loss and to provide a less sunken facial appearance.
A better alternative to dentures may be dental implants.
Problems with loose dentures?
If you are struggling to keep your conventional dentures in place, and are not ready for multiple implant placements, a conventional lower denture can be considerably improved by connecting it to a few implants to provide support, stability and comfort.
Implant-supported overdentures are a successful, effective and long-lasting alternative that prevents further bone loss. The denture will be secure but can easily be removed for cleaning.
